Now that about 45 percent of adults in the United States own smartphones, citizens are constantly equipped with an Internet connection, GPS functionality and a digital camera. Governments are taking advantage of that fact by using apps to ease the burden of providing services to residents.
Turns out government can be kinda cool sometimes! Check out the infographic here.

Ever use an app created by a federal, state or local government?

'Draw Something' showing no signs of slowing down

  • 50 million people have downloaded OMGPOP’s Draw Something source

» That’s about a million a day since its launch in February, keeping the ultra-popular game number one among paid apps in the App Store. The press release also noted that over 6 billion drawings have been created, with “latrine” being the least popular word to draw.  Suddenly, the $210 million that Zynga spent on the studio last month doesn’t sound so high, does it?

Popular photo-sharing app Instagram released for Android
After a two-year wait, nostalgia-driven Android users who own devices running Android 2.2 or higher, can finally join their iOS brethren on popular photo-sharing app Instagram.

The company says over 400,000 joined the list, which certainly sets high expectations for its official release. So, do you plan on downloading Instagram? source

Over the past two years, we’ve delivered Flash Player for mobile browsers and brought the full expressiveness of the web to many mobile devices. However, HTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively. This makes HTML5 the best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms.
Adobe Vice President and General Manager of Interactive Development Danny Winokur • Offering up an explanation for why the company has decided to stop actively developing their Flash mobile products — which Steve Jobs famously ripped apart in an open letter last year. With the iPhone no longer a viable platform for Flash development and the problems developing Flash on mobile devices becoming increasingly obvious, Adobe has decided to change its course entirely. More emphasis on tools (of which Flash is one); less emphasis on across-the-board development platforms. Adobe’s been moving in this direction for a little while; back in August, they released a tool called Edge, which is like Flash for HTML5. Think it’s the right move for them? source (viafollow)

usualchatter says: It's unfortunate, but the new gallery format here on Tumblr makes your site and stories unreadable on an iPhone. I suspect Android has the same issues.

» SFB says: We apologize for the issues and will look into it in the next few days. For what it’s worth, it looks like the Tumblr default iPhone theme doesn’t handle the issue too well either; but it looks like they updated the theme for them, at the very least. Thanks for the note. — Ernie @ SFB
